Marksmanship Camp was launched after Dustin's championship on History's Top Shot shooting competition.
“Dustin may be the best shooter we ever had.”
Those words spoken by “Top Shot” host Colby Donaldson echoed the sentiments of scores of viewers as they watched Dustin Ellermann shoot his way to the grand prize of season 3 of History’s top-rated program.
And while his stunning performance at the final challenge stood the shooting world on its ear, it was his character that endeared so many to this 28-year-old from Zavalla, TX. He brought no drama; only skill and passion along with a calm, cool demeanor into shooting challenges that rattled the most seasoned competitors.
Before he was the “Top Shot” champion, he was (and remains) the director of Camp His Way a summer Christian kids camp and year round retreat facility. He and his wife have been active in foster care ministry and they now have 5 children of their own (2 adopted).
And his easygoing attitude on shooting is much more impressive when you learn he was 99 percent self-taught.
“Shooting is fun to me and I thank the Lord for the opportunity to be on “Top Shot” and to now be able to share my passion for shooting through camp, range days and other appearances. Putting God and family first, I look forward to seeing where this journey leads.” ~ Dustin
